In this twenty-first century, our pastors are dying, churches are splitting, leaders are being exposed and ridiculed, and marriages and relationships are being destroyed-all because no one wants to die to self in order to serve. As I once did, have you ever thought about quitting and throwing in the towel because helping others has taken a toll on you? Have you ever felt like your life didn't matter, but you knew that God gave you a promise? Have you ever been hurt while trying to do what God called you to do? Have you felt like others have taken you for granted? Helping You is Killing Me will encourage you to hold on to your promise and cling to your dream, vision, and purpose. Don't quit. Don't leave. Don't stop pushing. Don't stop serving. Most importantly, don't step outside of God's will for your life. This is a test Pastor Everett and his family moved to the central Florida area in 2005 from Atlanta, Georgia, after serving in ministry for more than 19 years at New Birth Church, where Bishop Eddie L. Long is the Senior Pastor and Trinity Chapel Church of God, where Bishop Jim Bolin is the Senior Pastor. He currently serves as the Executive and Worship Pastor at Celebration of Praise Church in Clermont, Florida, where Bishop Chris Dutruch is the Senior Pastor. In addition to serving as the Executive and Worship Pastor, Everett and his wife, Kateena, serve as the Marriage Ministry Directors. In 2001, Everett released his first CD, titled "I Am Yours." In 2008, he was appointed to serve as Chairman for the Church of God State Music Board for the state of Florida. He and his wife, Kateena, are the proud parents of Alexis, Kendra, and Everett Emmanuel.
